Mister Seahorse by Eric Carle
Eric Carle is a master story teller as proved by the countless readers who have bought and read his books over and over. Eric Carle can illustrate like no other. The simplicity of his pictures combined with the pastel colors that he often uses make his stories peaceful, especially this one that takes place in the sea. The wonder of this book is that children can search through the pictures for hidden animals, essentially playing hide and seek within their book. The overall theme of the book enchants, detailing how important fathers are to their children and as an often neglected subject, fathers are celebrated here. This one on our shelf has been taped as use over time wore the pages down.
